    Hello all,
    I've decided to make a nice tutorial for creating Amiibo NTAG215s.

    You will need:
    • An Android phone with NFC support; most do have it.
    • NTAG215s (Development Website for Ninty sells them at $0.30/tag, Aliexpress for a bit more)
    • Amiitool (see below)
    • Amiibo retail keys (see below)


    I have updated this section as of 09 November 2016
    You still need TagMo (see https://github.com/HiddenRambler/TagMo/releases/latest) and the NFC key (see my Pastebin :wink:) but then just load in the key, and then get some tag dumps: As I cant say the exact name (it is copyrighted contents, even though they're only 540B), so you need to search for "NFC" and then the word that has the definition of "the land alongside or sloping down to a river or lake."

    Just load everything, and ensure you press (Auto)

    Want the slightly-out-of-date but still relevant copy? Here you go:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If you want to do it the old way that requires a PC and all the relevant stuff:

    What size should the keys.bin file be? amiitool says it can't load the keys so I believe I did something wrong.

    Will this work with other games like Lego dimensions, infinity and sky landers?

    This only works on amiibo, nothing else. The key must be 160 bytes (it's unfixed info + secret locked? (secret something) placed together, ryanrocks put it on his pastebin)

    How exactly do I make the key? In HxD I copied Unfixed infos, magic blob, hmac, locked secret, magic blog, hmac. I checked and without what's in () in hmac the file is only 90 bytes, with it it's 122 bytes. What am I missing?

    Basically this means you can copy your amiibo and just use the tags to be read instead of using the amiibo itself

    Hey, good job with the thread and thanks to all the people in the other thread who made this possible!
    For people looking for where to buy tags, people in that thread says that this works correctly. You will have to buy 100, but they are cheap anyway. If they are too much for you, you can share some amiibos with friends. (If you found some shop when you can buy less of them, send it to me, please)

    @HiddenRambler has made the TagMo's source code available here. I feel like we can integrate all of this process in the same app. (Dumping, scanning the blank tag to get the UID, fixing the dump and writing on the blank tag)

    A little late with IOSU coming out. I will just wait for a Gecko code to unlock everything. The best use for an Amibo is to unlock the good boards in Mario Party, and I don't even own Mario Party. Nintendo might make a good use for Link in Zelda U, but my only real Amiibo is Link, so I'm covered.

    Thanks for the guide though. It is helpful to people obsessed with Smash.

    This works too with 3DS, with hacks, without hacks... It's more reliable.

    Well then, surprised it got to a working state this fast.
    I'll have to actually order some NTAG215s at some point...
